Overview

About the property

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with on-site Parking and Fenced in Backyard

Located in a lovely area of Niagara Falls, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located only 3.3 miles from Niagara Falls State Park.

The master bedroom with attached bath is located on the first floor and has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor. One of the rooms has a queen bed with a small sitting room attached that has a daybed for an extra guest. The other bedroom has a double bed. The other full bathroom is on the second floor.

On the first floor in addition to the master bedroom, is the kitchen, living room and dining room, and back hallway that leads to a screened in porch and the back yard.

The house is in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls, a beautiful residential neighborhood, situated near Niagara University. The house is a 10-minute walk to the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole State Parks and a 10 min. drive or 20 min. bike ride along the Gorge to the Niagara Falls State Park. Lewiston is also a short drive up the parkway and has many cute shops and nice restaurants.

The house is most easily accessed by car but the NFTA buses do run along Lewiston Road which is on the corner and goes to either Lewiston or to Niagara Falls.

The house has wi-fi throughout. There is a SmartTV and DVD player in the master bedroom, but there is no cable (we do have an interior antenna for broadcast channels). There is a driveway for you to use to park your vehicle. Pets will be considered.

About Carroll Reetz

We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home. We love hosting visitors from all over the world and introducing them to not only the beauty of Niagara Falls but the uniqueness and history that surrounds us.

Carroll Reetz purchased this house in 2012

Why Carroll Reetz chose Greater Niagara

The Whirlpool Cottage is in the nicest area of Niagara Falls where visitors can feel relaxed and secure in their home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charming and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from Nashville with our family of four to meet up with my parents to stay in Niagara Falls. The house was awesome. Even though there were six of us, there was plenty of space to get a little rest and privacy in the afternoons. We are grateful to our host for being so kind and attentive, and we'd definitely return.

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

It was so helpful to be near Niagara Falls area. It probably took us no more than 10 or 15 minutes to get to the American side. Nice quiet residential area served as welcome contrast to the hubbub of the Falls areas. Although we didn't have a dog or need to smoke, both items are allowed in this house. A screened-in porch serves as a smoking room with a view of a small backyard.

Whirlpool Cottage is an older house with lots of original floors, doors, etc. Original wood floors were creaky but charming. Steps to upstairs for in that same category. Both bathrooms had been updated, and were very clean. Very nice house for a short stay to view a Wonder of the world.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay but to be clear to future guests - there is NO SMOKING in the house. We have a screened in porch or backyard for smokers. We do allow some dogs but they must be approved in advance.

Perfect location for visit to Niagara falls

  • 5 of 5

The house was around 3 - 4miles from the Niagara falls state park. Though it was so close, it was away from the crowd. We enjoyed our stay. The owner was very responsive to all the communication. We also visited the Niagara fort during our visit.

Comfortable and convenient to the falls!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for visiting Niagara with two couples or a family. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the bathrooms are nicely updated. The home and neighborhood is welcoming and great for walking tours of the area.

Lovely home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners are wonderful - we had great communication and Carroll gave some us some great tips on things to do. We arrived to find the house very clean and full of charm and character. Myself, my husband and 2 college age boys were all very comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need to make meals, which is why we rent VRBO's - we love to cook our own breakfasts and occasional dinners, so a stocked kitchen is important. There were even tons of spices so you don't have to buy any of those. The house is in the most perfect location to visit all the major attractions. We loved the falls, however one of our favorite excursions was when we spent the day in Whirlpool State Park and hiked down the many stone steps to the river, then hiked down further to see the whirlpool up close. This park is just a few miles from the house. On another day, we crossed over into Canada and bike rode among the vineyards in Niagara on the Lake - again, very convenient to do so from the New York side. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay!!

Feels like home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in August and it was such a great stay! Other then a few minor issues it was such a pleasure staying at a home with our friends instead of staying in a hotel! It allowed us to spend so much time together and it was amazing! It was really close to Niagara Falls and even other shopping place that we wanted to go to. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Many many thanks go to the homeowners for letting us rent your house so we could have such a fantastic vacation!
